 Abstract

This seminar will address the concept of a “learning health system.” A learning health system can be advanced if informatics with community engagement, the clinical delivery system, and the research enterprise are successfully integrated. The overall efficiency of medicine and the rational basis for decision making will be enhanced as the practical issues of integrating knowledge into clinical care and public health are solved. These will be the focus of the presentation.
